Casa Palapa is an outsized oceanfront house in the far northern wing of Papaya Playa. Recently built with some facilities around yet to be completed to form a self-contained private holiday compound, it currently embodies a grand suite on top; a two bedroom suite and a double room on the ground level.
The grand suite encapsulates two spacious bedrooms of which the master is bestowed with a double-king bed, each with a private bathroom; a lounge appointed with a jacuzzi, and a vast sun terrace. The two bedroom suite downstairs has one furnished with the king size bed while the second is a twin room with two single beds. Bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, connect through a lounge. Private double room is a large space with a view, furnished with a double bed and appointed with a bathroom.
All rooms boast of their minimal design which facilitates one's appreciation of nature. Tightly embracing the house, it renders it with the most lavish decoration. Floor to ceiling windows allow maximum light and a feeling of openness that brings the outside in and the inside out. The sliding windows wide open to intake the breeze bring the guests in the enjoyably physical contact with the astonishing infinity views in the early hours when the Sun proclaims the new day from below the horizon.
The Palapa House derives its name from an enormous palapa attached to it. Its open-sided thatch-roofed space amounting to 400m2 (totaling the space up to 9,200m2) serves as a giant lounge appointed with a full kitchen, generous 20-seater dining table, capacious wine rack, floor lamps, large sofas, colorful bean bag chairs, and other seating, all distributed around the area forming functional and comfort clusters. Naturally illuminated during the day, at night the light comes from some 30 variously sized and shaped handmade wicker fixtures hanging from the 15 meters high ceiling. The ocean side of Palapa is given in its entirety to a rivulet-like swimming pool. Long and curving, it seamlessly connects the palapa to the house, where the pool commences with a lesser depth. It culminates where the beautifully massive staircase of the palapa takes one directly to the beach.
At the rear of the "Palapa House" lies a pristine jungle gently transpierced with a pathway winding in between palm trees. It leads to the guarded gates with a parking lot in their proximity.
A few steps away from Casa Palapa is an open-through tropical chapel standing on the rocks overlooking the ocean. It is spacious enough to seat a congregation of 105 persons.
Considering its size and secluded location, Casa Palapa is ideal accommodation for families and small groups of up to 10. Aside from the rooms, the tremendous space of Palapa is perfect for large ceremonies and events.
